LS-DYNA Versions

1.1.1

MPP and SMP

MPP and SMP version of this release are available on most hardware platforms. The SMP or Shared Memory Processing version should run on the hardware without the installation of any other software. The MPP or Massively Parallel Processing version of the code needs to have the correct MPI or Message Passing Interface libraries loaded on the system. There are several different versions of these libraries available and the correct executable must be used for the MPI loaded on the system. The current popular MPIs are: HPMPI, OPENMPI and MPICH.

1.1.2

Double and Single precision

Double and Single precision versions are also available for all platforms. The Single precision version uses 32 bit precision for the arithmetic and the double precision version uses 64 bit precision. Most explicit calculations can be run in the single precision version, however where greater accuracy is desired or for implicit calculations the double precision version should be used.

1.1.3

Windows and UNIX

There are no major differences in the Unix/Linux versions and the Windows versions of LSDYNA. However the windows version may be downloaded as a complete installation which includes the LSTC LS-DYNA manager, LS-PREPOST and example files.

1.1.4

General Environment Variables

Environmental Variables for LS-DYNA 1. The following environmental variables: LSTC_SECURITY_DIR LSTC_LICENSE LSTC_LICENSE_SERVER LSTC_CLIENT_DEBUG LSTC_LICENSE_SERVER_PORT are all used with the LS-DYNA network security and are described in section 4 of this guide. For a nodelocked security file the environmental variable LSTC_FILE need only be defined. On a UNIX/Linux system the default name is /usr/local/lstc/LSTC_FILE. To define the license file, use the following command:

setenv LSTC_FILE (license file name)

2. LSTC_DEFGEO: Defines the format for ASCII file DEFGEO to be DaimlerChrsyler's format. If you do not define this variable, the program defaults to the standard LS-DYNA format. To output DaimlerChrsyler's format do the following: setenv LSTC_DEFGEO Chrysler

3. LSTC_FORMAT: Defines the format for the d3plot and d3thdt output files. This variable allows the user to output the binary plot files in ANSYS format as well as both ANYSYS and LS-DYNA format. By not defining this variable the output files will be in standard LS-DYNA format. To output ANSYS format do the following: setenv LSTC_FORMAT Ansys To output ANSYS and LS-DYNA format do the following: setenv LSTC_FORMAT taurus+Ansys
Installation Guide_LS-DYNA-971_R4-2-1.doc

Oasys LS-DYNA Environment

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

Note that the user can also control the output format with the *DATABASE_FORMAT command.

4. LSTC_BINARY: Define the word size of the d3plot and d3thdt files to be 32 bit IEEE. By using this option one can reduce the size of the output files which are created by 64 bit machines such as CRAY or any DOUBLE precision versions. By not defining this variable LS-DYNA defaults to the word size of the machine. To invoke this option, do the following: setenv LSTC_BINARY 32ieee Note that the user also can control the output size in column 8 of the *CONTROL_OUTPUT command. For example: *CONTROL_OUTPUT $NPOPT NEECHO NREFUP IACCOP OPTIFS IPRINT IKEDIT IBINARY

5. LSTC_MEMORY: Controls memory extension. The user can set the default memory size by using the command line option "MEMORY" The "auto" option is useful for adaptive runs because it allows LS-DYNA to automatically extend memory. This option is for metal forming application only. Do not use it for the crash analysis. setenv LSTC_MEMORY auto

6. LSTC_ELENGTH: Controls minimum length of shell elements. If the length of any shell elements is less than the defined value, the program will be terminated. setenv LSTC_ELENGTH 0.02

7. LSTC_D3DUMP: Controls the output of restart dump file. The "off" will disable the d3dump output. setenv LSTC_D3DUMP off

Note; In the above Environmental Variables the command given is for UNIX/Linux using the C-shell. For Bourne or other shells the environmental variable command is as follows:

LSTC_FILE=usr/local/lstc/LSTC_FILE_NAME;export LSTC_FILE On Windows XP set the environmental variables through Control Panel -> Advanced -> Environmental Variables.

SMP VERSIONS
All SMP versions of LS-DYNA allow the user to set the number of processors at the beginning of the job. This means that if you choose to run on 4 processors the entire run will use 4 processors. For example, use one of following two methods to run an SMP version of LS-DYNA job with 4 CPUs: a) Define NCPU=4 in the LS-DYNA input deck. Set NCPU on *CONTROL_PARALLEL for KEYWORD input decks.

b) Use the command line option NCPU. For example: ls-dyna ncpu=4 i=(input file) ls-dyna ncpu=-4 para=1 i=(input file) The command line option NCPU will override the number of CPU's defined in the input file. A positive number will set the consistent result flag to 2 (off), the default for LS-DYNA 940.2 and subsequent versions, and a negative number will set the consistent result flag to 1 (on). You will get better performance by setting the consistent result flag to 2. Also, the new command line option PARA will override the parallel force assembly flag in the input file.

2.1

Machine Specific Settings


2.1.1 IBM

The LS-DYNA executable is built using IBM Fortran Compiler xlf 11.1.0.1. Sometimes the customer installation either does not have any IBM Fortran compiler installed or compilers installed on the customer system may be of an older version. In such situations, LS-DYNA either will not work or works incorrectly. This problem can be resolved in two ways: 1) Customer installs IBM Fortran Compiler which is at least at xlf 11.1.0.1 2) Obtain the IBM Fortran Libraries which were used to build this particular version of LSDYNA free of charge from LSTC. If the customer follows Alternative 1, no further action is needed. If the customer follows Alternative 2 then the following procedure is needed to make use of the IBM Fortran Libraries supplied by LSTC to run LS-DYNA program: Unpack the compressed and tarred file (gunzip then tar xvf),
ibm_xlf_111_lib.tgz

containing Fortran libraries into any file system. When unpacked, the directory structure of these libraries is as follows:
../xlf11.1.0.1/

Please set the following environment variable before starting LS-DYNA: k-shell: export LIBPATH= (path)/xlf11.1.0.1/:$LIBPATH c-shell: setenv LIBPATH "(path)/xlf11.1.0.1/:$LIBPATH"

2.1.1.1

SMP Version of LS-DYNA for AIX 5.3

The following are the prerequisites to run ls971 on IBM platforms: AIX OPERATING SYSTEM FORTRAN RUNTIME LIBRARIES

AIX OPERATING SYSTEM You need AIX 5.3L 7 to run ls971. You can verify this by typing the following command on the console:
oslevel

For example, when you type the above command the system will respond with a message similar to the following:
5.3.7.0

If you have back level AIX, please contact your local IBM Sales Representative to order an upgrade package.

FORTRAN RUNTIME LIBRARIES The following ls971 executables are built using xlf 11.1.0.1 libraries:
ls971_d_rev#_ibmpwr3_aix51_p ls971_m63_rev#_ibmpwr3_51_p ls971_d_rev#_ibmpwr5_aix53_p ls971_s_rev#_ibmpwr3_aix51_p ls971_s_rev#_ibmpwr5_aix53_p

If you have back level IBM XLF FORTRAN, (earlier than xlf 11.1.0.1 level) or XLF runtime is not installed at all on your system you have two options:

1) Please contact your local IBM Sales Representative to order either and an upgrade package or a new license for IBM XLF FORTRAN.

2) Please contact LSTC to obtain the runtime XLF libraries used to build this version of LSDYNA. These runtime libraries can be used to run LS-DYNA even if you either do not have IBM XLF FORTRAN installed on your system or if you have back level IBM XLF FORTRAN on your system. You can verify this by typing the following command on the console:
lslpp -L | grep -i Fortran

For example, when you type the above command, the system will respond with a message similar to the following:

Fileset Level State Description --------------------------------------------------------------------xlfcmp 11.1.0.1 APPLIED XL Fortran Compiler xlfrte 11.1.0.1 APPLIED XL Fortran Runtime xlfrte.aix52 11.1.0.1 APPLIED XL Fortran Runtime Environment

Instructions on running LS-DYNA in parallel on IBM RS/6000 machines In order to obtain the best parallel performance, setting several environment variables is recommended. For example, here's a C shell script showing how to run using four processors:
# setenv YIELDLOOPTIME 10000000 setenv SPINLOOPTIME 1000000

setenv LSTC_MEMORY auto # ls971 i=car.k ncpu=-4

The YIELDLOOPTIME and SPINLOOPTIME settings will improve parallel efficiency of LS-DYNA. The LSTC_MEMORY setting will automatically increase the memory size so that the memory doesn't need to be set on the command line. Note that LSTC_MEMORY option is for metal forming application only. Do not use it for the crash analysis. The "ncpu" setting on the LS-DYNA command line will override the number of processors specified in the input deck. Users are strongly recommended to read and understand the flags which control consistency of results (*CONTROL_PARALLEL in the keyword manual, control card 16 in the structured deck manual). In this example, setting ncpu to "-4" will run LS-DYNA on four processors and produce numerically consistent results. Parallel performance will, of course, be greatly affected by other jobs running on the same machine. This is normally controlled by a queuing system such as "LoadLeveler" or cooperation among users of a system. Other site-specific options can also be put in place.

MULTIPLE PAGE SIZE SUPPORT on AIX 5L Version 5.3 IBM - pSeries POWER5+ processor and AIX 5L Version 5.3 with the 5300-04 or later Recommended Maintenance Package supports two new virtual memory page sizes - 64KB and 16MB. The default virtual memory pages for AIX 5L is 4KB. Using larger virtual memory page sizes for an application's memory can result in improved application performance due to hardware efficiencies associated with the hardware. The actual improvement for an application depends on the size of the model and application behaviour. While 16MB "large" are intended to be used in very large model based LS-DYNA applications, 64KB "medium" pages are more general purpose and most LS-DYNA applications will likely see a benefit by using 64KB pages rather than the 4KB "default" page size AIX uses to manage virtual memory of applications. In this section the procedure of using 16MB and 64KB pages sizes is outlined.

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

Using 16MB "large" pages 1) In order for an application to use 16 MB page size, certain amount of system memory needs to be reserved ("pinned") for this use. Additionally, the user who starts an application needs permission to use large pages. Both of these system administration procedures and you should consult with you local system administrator in order to have this setup completed.

2) The next step is to enable application to use 16MB page size. The following AIX command can be used to enable the application to use 16MB large page.
ldedit -b lpdata <your LS-DYNA executable>

3) Now you are ready to start up your LS-DYNA SMP program as you are normally setup to do.

4) While the LS-DYNA application is active you can verify if the application is using large pages =or not by using the following AIX command:
ps -Z -u <user id used to start the application>

Using 64KB "medium" pages 1) The 64KB page size is designed to be general purpose and no system setup is needed. Simply enable the application to use 64KB page size. This can be accomplished by using the following AIX command:
ldedit -btextpsize=64K -bdatapsize=64K -bstackpsize=64K <your LS-DYNA App>

2) While the LS-DYNA application is active you can verify if the application is using 64KB pages or not by using the following AIX command:
ps -Z -u <user id used to start the application>

2.1.2

SGI IRIX

Performance notes for IRIX machines

LS-DYNA will perform best on IRIX machines if the command file sets several environment variables. Attached are the recommended sets of variables for your command files for LSDYNA jobs using either one or multiple processors. If you have questions about the "setenv" settings, contact your local SGI representative. Many of these variables are described in the "man mp" man pages.
Single Processor Jobs --------------------setenv MPC_GANG off setenv OMP_DYNAMIC FALSE setenv OMP_NUM_THREADS 1 setenv _DSM_PPM 2 setenv _DSM_PLACEMENT ROUND_ROBIN setenv TRAP_FPE "OVERFL=ABORT; DIVZERO=ABORT; INVALID=ABORT; INT_OVERFL=ABORT" ls971_s_#rev#_sgir10k_65_p i=r.003 memory=120000000 ncpu=-1

Oasys LS-DYNA Environment

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

Shared Memory Parallel Jobs --------------------------setenv MPC_GANG off setenv OMP_DYNAMIC FALSE setenv OMP_NUM_THREADS 4 setenv _DSM_PPM 2 setenv _DSM_PLACEMENT ROUND_ROBIN setenv TRAP_FPE "OVERFL=ABORT; DIVZERO=ABORT; INVALID=ABORT; INT_OVERFL=ABORT" ls971_s_rev#_sgir10k_65_p i=r.003 memory=120000000 ncpu=-4

Notes: -----MPC_GANG off will help system throughput by disabling gang scheduling. OMP_DYNAMIC FALSE will disable dynamic threads on IRIX 6.5 systems, slightly improving performance. This will have no effect on IRIX 6.4 systems. OMP_NUM_THREADS should be set to the number of processors to be used in the analysis. It is important to set this even if you will only run with a single processor. _DSM_PPM specifies the the number of processors per memory module. Valid values are either 1 or 2. Setting _DSM_PPM to "2" is almost always best. _DSM_PLACEMENT ROUND_ROBIN will dramatically improve performance of shared memory parallel jobs. Setting the TRAP_FPE variable will stop LS-DYNA with a core dump when a floating point exception is encountered. Should this occur, contact LSTC.

How to install SCSL runtime library

1. 2.

login as root make a working directory


cd /usr/tmp mkdir scsl_dir

3.

copy sgi_scsl13_lib.tgz into /usr/tmp/scsl_dir


cp sgi_scsl13_lib.tgz /usr/tmp/scsl_dir

4.

The file "sgi_scsl_13_lib.tgz" is tarred and gzipped file. To extract the files:
gunzip sgi_scsl13_lib.tgz tar xvf sgi_scsl13_lib.tar ---> sgi_scsl13_lib.tar

you will find out 6 files.


scsl, scsl.hdr, scsl.idb, scsl.man, scsl.sw32, scsl.sw64)

Install SCSL in the default location if you have root privileges:

11. rm -r /usr/tmp/scsl_dir Done.

Install SCSL in a local location if you don't have root privileges:

5. create a local directory For example: mkdir ~/lib 6. inst -r ~/lib -f /usr/tmp/scsl_dir -Vrulesoverride:on A NOTE: -Vrulesoverride:on is needed to install due to the fact that ~/lib is a local directory containing only the SCSL software. The -Vrulesoverride:on will turn off the verification of perquisite sub-systems. 7. rm -r /usr/tmp/scsl_dir 8. Once the software is installed, you must enter the following commands in your Unix shell window to set the the path where the linker will look for the runtime libraries first. In the previous example,
libscs[_mp].so will be in /usr/people/lstc/usr/lib[32,64]

* For c-shell, run the following commands in a Unix shell window:


# setenv LD_LIBRARY64_PATH /usr/people/lstc/usr/lib64 # setenv LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH /usr/people/lstc/usr/lib32 Miscellaneous SCSL information:

2.1.3

HP-UX

To run parallel LS-DYNA, you need to have machines with HP-UX Version 11.00 or higher. When a new machine is installed with HP-UX 11i, 11.22 or later, there is a choice of operating environments. Please make sure that the Technical Computing Operating Environment (TCOE) is chosen. Once the TCOE is installed, the SMP LS-DYNA are ready to run with the released PA or IA64(Itanium2) executables. To relink SMP LS-DYNA to create a new executable, the math library, mlib, is needed. Mlib can be downloaded at http://www.hp.com/go/mlib.

2.1.4

SUN

For this release, only 64-bit executable will be supported. Hence the dynamic library setting has been converted from what pertains to 32-bit executable to 64-bit. For SUN Workstations: 1. You will need Fortran runtime libraries to run the dynamically linked version. You can use the "ldd" command to list all libraries used by LS-DYNA executable. For example:
% ldd ls971_s_rev#_sun_58 libthread.so.1 => /usr/lib/64/libthread.so.1 libc.so.1 => /usr/lib/64/libc.so.1 libnsl.so.1 => /usr/lib/64/libnsl.so.1 libsunperf_mt.so.4 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9a/libsunperf_mt.so.4 libsunmath.so.1 => //opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libsunmath.so.1 libm.so.1 => /usr/lib/64/libm.so.1 libsocket.so.1 => /usr/lib/64/libsocket.so.1 libfui.so.1 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfui.so.1 libfai.so.2 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfai.so.2 libfai2.so.2 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfai2.so.2 libfsumai.so.1 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfsumai.so.1 libfprodai.so.1 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfprodai.so.1 libfminlai.so.1 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfminlai.so.1 libfmaxlai.so.1 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfmaxlai.so.1 libfminvai.so.1 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfminvai.so.1 libfmaxvai.so.1 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfmaxvai.so.1 libfsu.so.1 => /opt/SUNWspro/lib/v9/libfsu.so.1 libdl.so.1 => /usr/lib/64/libdl.so.1 libmp.so.2 => /usr/lib/64/libmp.so.2 /usr/platform/SUNW,Sun-Fire-280R/lib/sparcv9/libc_psr.so.1

MPP VERSIONS

Each hardware vendor may have different way to execute the MPP program. Here is a summary for all the platforms. Note: # is number of processor used for the job

3.1

HP-MPI: Linux and HP-UX


Where to Get and How to Install HP-MPI

3) Linux Download the rpm file from the Arup website at www.oasys-software.com/dyna. X86 i386 x86_64

AMD64 and XEON64 Itanium2 ia64

To install, be root and invoke:


% rpm ivh the_hp_mpi_file_you_downloaded.rpm

i install v verbose h prints hash marks as archive is unpacked

(B) HP-UX If you dont have HP-MPI on your system, please contact HP.
How to Run MPP LS-DYNA/HP-MPI

Use $MPI_ROOT/bin/mpirun to run MPP LS-DYNA, where $MPI_ROOT is the directory in which HP-MPI is installed. (Normally, $MPI_ROOT is /opt/hpmpi for Linux, and /opt/mpi for HP-UX.) 4) Within a single-image machine First determine a working directory on the machine. To avoid performance penalty caused by slow I/O, it is preferable that this working directory is in a local file system. Copy the input files into this working directory. Then, assuming that workdir be this working directory and mppdyna_exe be the MPP LS-DYNA executable, run an MPP LS-DYNA/HP-MPI job by one of the following two equivalent ways: % cd workdir % mpirun np n <other mpirun options> mppdyna_exe <LS-DYNA command options> % mpirun e MPI_WORKDIR=workdir np n <other mpirun options> mppdyna_exe <LS-DYNA command options> where n is the number of processes, and <mpirun options> include protocol-selection options, like VAPI, and the CPU binding option cpu_bind. For NUMA machines (e.g., Opteron) it is advisable to use the CPU binding option to increase performance.

Oasys LS-DYNA Environment

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

5) Across a cluster Similarly, to run an MPP LS-DYNA job across a cluster, first determine a working directory on each node with the same name to be used as the working directory. To avoid performance penalty caused by slow I/O, it is preferable that this working directory be in a local file system on each node; for example, use /tmp as the working directory. Let the name of this working directory be represented as workdir. Copy the input files to this working directory in the root node, which is the first node in the appfile described below. And then run an MPP LSDYNA/HP-MPI job by one of the following two equivalent ways in the root node: % cd workdir % mpirun <mpirun options> -f appfile

% mpirun e MPI_WORKDIR=workdir <other mpirun options> -f appfile

LICENSING
LS-DYNA can be run using a network license or it can be nodelocked to a single machine. This section describes the two methods.

4.1

Server (Network) Licensing


4.1.1 4.1.1.1 UNIX/Linux Introduction

This section describes the installation of the LSTC Network License Manager, also referred to as the License Server or just server. The LS-DYNA executables are not needed to install the License Manager and are not included as part of the License Manager software. The run LSDYNA you must have the proper executable for your platform. The LSTC Network License Manager consists of the following parts: (Note; the lstc_**** files are all contained in the net_security_<platform> files which are available to download from our website: www.oasys-software.com/dyna. The server_data license file will be issued to you by Oasys Ltd) lstc_server lstc_client lstc_qrun lstc_qkill server_data License Server executable file External Client which communicates with the License Server
(this is an alternative to using the client built into LS-DYNA)

Program used to view the job queue Program used to kill a job in the queue License file for License Server (nodelocked to a particular machine)

4.1.1.2

Internal/External Client set-up

License Server lstc_server runs on a single machine and is available for most UNIX and Linux platforms. The License Server is nodelocked to a particular machine on the network and once started, runs as a daemon which communicates through the network to machines that will be running LS-DYNA. Machines which run LS-DYNA are referred to as Client Machines. (Note; the machine running the License Server can also be considered a Client if you intend to run LS-DYNA on that machine.) The Client Machines communicate with the License Server with either the External Client lstc_client or with the built-in Internal Client which is part of each LSDYNA executable. The default for version 970 rev 5434 and newer versions is the Internal Client. It is recommended to use the Internal Client since it does not require the user to place a copy of the External Client on each machine. The External Client option should only be used in the event that a problem is found with the Internal Client.
4.1.1.3 DNS (Domain Name Server)

The server configuration files and utilities and the client program, rely on a properly working name server (or /etc/hosts file) set-up in order to look up host names and IP addresses. Basically, each machine needs to be able to find its own hostname and find the IP address of other hosts on your network.

4.1.1.4

License Server Set-up

Step 1: Define Configuration File Directory The License Server runs as a daemon. It can be started from the command line or in the system initialization files. It does not need to be run as root, but of course it can be. Before starting the License Server you need to identify where the License Server configuration files will be found. The main configuration file is the server license file server_data Group File. The server_data file is provided by Oasys Ltd.

There are 2 options for defining the subdirectory for the configuration files: 1) Use the default location of /usr/local/lstc. This involves having root privilege on your machine because /usr/local is owned by root and you need to create a subdirectory called lstc. After creating this directory set the permission to the directory for read and execute: chmod 755 /usr/local/lstc 6) The second option allows one to use any directory by defining the following environmental variable:

Environment C Shell /bin/csh Korn Shell /bin/ksh

Command Format setenv LSTC_SECURITY_DIR directory_path set LSTC_ SECURITY_DIR = directory_path export LSTC_SECURITY_DIR

Step 2:

Generate the Server Information required to create a license file

Machine ID There are 2 pieces of information that are needed to generate a license file. The first one is created by running the License Server as follows: lstc_server info The command line parameter info tells the License Server to generate a file called: LSTC_SERVER_INFO The file is located in the directory defined in Step 1.

IP Address Range The second piece of information is supplied by the user and is the IP Address Range that covers the client machines. The License Server only allows machines that have IP address in the range that is defined in the license file. The license file can include multiple ranges which are continuous or discontinuous. For example:
ALLOW_RANGE: 192.168.001.001 192.168.001.255

This example allows for 255 IP addresses:


Installation Guide_LS-DYNA-971_R4-2-1.doc Ove Arup & Partners Ltd August 2009

Page 16

Oasys LS-DYNA Environment

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

192.168.001.001 192.168.001.002 192.168.001.003 . . 192.168.001.255 Note in this example that the ALLOW_RANGE picks up the common root numbers of 192.168.001

Another example is: ALLOW_RANGE: 192.168.001.001 192.168.255.255

In this example the root numbers are 192.168 and it includes all possible combinations for the last 2 numbers from 1 to 255. A single IP Address can be included by entering the same number twice as follows: ALLOW_RANGE: 192.168.020.150 192.168.020.150

Note: The user cannot modify the ALLOW_RANGE in the license file server_data. It can only be modified by Oasys Ltd.

Here is a sample server_data file:


ACME Inc. EMAIL: joe@acme.com FAX: 555-555-5555 TELEPHONE: 555-555-5555 (Joe Smith) # SERVER: 0B40E165 # ALLOW_RANGE: 192.168.001.001 192.168.001.255 DENY_RANGE: 192.168.001.128 192.168.001.164 # SERVER_WRITE: 600 SERVER_PING: 1200 CLIENT_PING: 900 ASSUME_DEAD: 3600 # CPUS: 10 MPPDYNA_970 12312005 LS-DYNA_970 12312005 # KEY: D0 E1 16 58 8D B4 91 2E A2 A0 C0 15 88 D7 40 C2

Once you receive the license file DO NOT MODIFY it. If the IP Address Range needs to be modified contact LSTC or your local distributor, indicate the changes and request a new license file. If the license file is modified when you try to run LS-DYNA it will display a bad license error message and terminate the run. There is only one option that can be added by the user and that is the GROUPFILE which be discussed later.

Summary Step 1. Step 2. Generate the LSTC_SERVER_INFO and determine the IP Address Range Send this information to LSTC or your local distributor

Step 3:

Start the License Server

The syntax for running the license server is as follows: lstc_server [-adfhnN] [-l logfile] [info] The info parameter was discussed in the last section. It is used to generate the LSTC_SERVER_INFO file. The other options are as follows:

Parameter -a -d -f -h -n

Description Allow jobs to be killed by anyone Print debugging information Run in the foreground Write program license activity to the file logfile Replace logfile with whatever name you select Allows a user or root to kill a job from any machine on the network as long as the user name matches the one associated with a particular job in the queue. (This is the default) Kill jobs based on matching the hostname and username associated with the job Generate the LSTC_SERVER_INFO file

-N info

Note: Starting the license server with the -l and n options are recommended.

Examples: 1) List command line options: lstc_server h 2) Start license manager so that a log file is written: lstc_server l server_log

3) Start license manager so that a log file is written and so that a user or the root login can kill a job from the queue from any machine on your network: lstc_server n l server_log

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

Note: Any name can be used for the filename, in this example the filename is server_log.

Starting the License Server Once you have obtained the license file server_data place it in the directory defined by the environmental parameter LSTC_SECURITY_DIR, then start the license manager: lstc_server n l logfile by executing the license manager executable. Make sure the permissions are set on the file so that the operating system sees it as an executable. If it does not have x in the permissions then change it by doing the following: chmod +x lstc_server The license server runs as a daemon program on the machine that has been designated as the license server machine, ie., the machine defined in the license file server_data. It can be started by the root user or by an individual user. In most cases start it as the root user.

Log File The log file is a simple text file that can viewed by the user. An example of one is shown below:
asmith 5594716@jeddi LS-DYNA_970 NCPU=2 started Thu May 20 10:37:53 bjones 5714546@bambi MPPDYNA_970 NCPU=8 queued Thu May 20 10:40:48 5594716@jeddi killed Thu May 20 10:41:16 5714546@bambi started Thu May 20 10:41:16 5714546@bambi killed Thu May 20 10:41:33 jackson 5726490@salmon LS-DYNA_970 NCPU=2 started Thu May 20 10:41:51 5726490@salmon completed Thu May 20 10:42:03 bjones 5727076@bambi LS-DYNA_970 NCPU=2 started Thu May 20 13:39:21 5727076@bambi killed Thu May 20 13:59:55 thompson 5728612@machine210 MPPDYNA_970 NCPU=4 started Thu May 20 14:04:22 5728612@machine210 completed Thu May 20 14:04:36 ellis 5758255@alvin LS-DYNA_970 NCPU=2 started Thu May 20 18:08:25 5758255@alvin presumed dead Thu May 20 19:16:10 william 24952@oscar LS-DYNA_970 NCPU=1 started Wed Jun 16 11:40:43 24952@oscar completed Wed Jun 16 11:41:45

The log file contains information about jobs started, queued and returned by the application. Each job is identified by the following format: username pid@hostname program where,

Installation Guide_LS-DYNA-971_R4-2-1.doc

Page 19

Ove Arup & Partners Ltd August 2009

Oasys LS-DYNA Environment

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

Description username pid hostname program Login name of the user that submitted the job Process ID number (unique to each job) Hostname of the computer where the job is running Program that is running. The server license file has a list of possible programs that can be run. For example: LSDYNA_970, MPPDYNA_970, etc.

When a license is requested there are 2 possible first entries, one indicating the job is started and the other indicating the job has been placed in the queue. For example:

A job started: asmith 5594716@jeddi LS-DYNA_970 NCPU=2 started Thu May 20 10:37:53 A job placed in the queue: bjones 5714546@bambi LS-DYNA_970 NCPU=2 queued Thu May 20 10:40:48

Jobs are placed in the queue when there are not enough available resources. For the above example, if the license file was set for 2 CPUs then both of these jobs could not be run at the same time so the second job is waiting until the first one finishes and releases the 2 CPUs back to the license manager. Note that any future entries for the same instance of the same program are somewhat abbreviated, in that the user name, program name, and number of CPUS is left out. For example, when the job that was queued is finally allowed to run the following entry is written into the log file:
5714546@bambi started Thu May 20 10:41:16

There are three types of termination messages that may be written to the log file:
5714546@bambi killed Thu May 20 10:41:33 5714546@bambi completed Thu May 20 10:41:33 5714546@bambi presumed dead Thu May 20 10:41:33

killed completed

indicates that the program was killed via the "lstc_qkill" utility described below. indicates that the program released it license back to the server

presumed dead indicates that the server has not had contact with the program within the allotted time and is releasing the license unilaterally. In this case the job was either: (a) terminated by the user, (b) machine crashed or (c) network problem

4.1.1.5

Restarting the LS-DYNA server

If the LS-DYNA server needs to be restarted the following procedure can be used:

To stop the currently running server: Log on as root and run the command: ps e | grep lstc_server This should give output of the form: 5261 pts/3 00:00:05 lstc_server Then type the command: kill -9 5261 (where 5261 is from the output of the ps
command above)

Repeat the ps e | grep lstc_server command to check the process has stopped you should get no output if it has.

To restart the server again: Log on as root and run the command: nohup /usr/local/lstc/lstc_server I LSTC_LOG & Note: this assumes the server software is installed in /usr/local/lstc, the log file is LSTC_LOG in that folder and the license files is server_data in that folder.

4.1.1.6

Client Setup

The term Client refers to any machine on the network that will be running LS-DYNA. As noted in the Server Setup section, the machine that runs the License Server can also be a Client machine and run LS-DYNA. If this is the case then the machine running the License Server has to be configured both as the Server machine and as a Client machine. The Client Setup consists of setting several environmental variables. These variables need to be set by each user before they can run LS-DYNA. There are several ways to do this: 1. Define global variables for all users 2. Include them as part of the users environment For a C Shell define them in the .cshrc file For a Korn Shell define them in the .profile file 3. Create a script that sets the variables and then run LS-DYNA

Note: ALWAYS SET THESE VARIABLES: Variable Name LSTC_LICENSE LSTC_LICENSE_SERVER Value network Hostname or IP Address of License Server Machine

Page 21

Ove Arup & Partners Ltd August 2009

Oasys LS-DYNA Environment

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

Note: ONLY SET THESE VARIABLES IF NECESSARY: on off This variable only needs to be set to turn it off. Setting it to on or not setting it is the same. (The default for Version 970 Rev 3858 and older is off.) On Port Number It must be set on the Server and Client machines (Only set to change from the default value)

LSTC_INTERNAL_CLIENT

LSTC_CLIENT_DEBUG LSTC_LICENSE_SERVER_PORT

Note: The syntax for setting the variables depends upon what shell environment you use:

Environment C Shell Korn Shell

Command Syntax setenv VariableName value set VariableName = value export VariableName

Client Environmental Variables LSTC_LICENSE: By default LS-DYNA looks for a node locked license. It is necessary to set this variable to the value network in order to tell LS-DYNA to look for the network license manager.

LSTC_LICENSE_SERVER:

This variable tells LS-DYNA where the License Server is running. The value can be the hostname of the machine or its IP Address.

LSTC_INTERNAL_CLIENT:

For LS-DYNA Version 970 Rev 5434 and newer the default is to use the internal client which means this variable does not need to be set. To use the external client lstc_client for Rev 5434 and newer versions set this variable to off. (Note this is only recommended when there is a reported problem with the internal client).

LSTC_CLIENT_DEBUG:

Set this variable for debugging network license problems. This should only be set for debugging. The default is off.

LSTC_LICENSE_SERVER_PORT: The default port that is used for communication between the client and the license server is 31010. This variable can be used to change that default

Installation Guide_LS-DYNA-971_R4-2-1.doc

Page 22

Ove Arup & Partners Ltd August 2009

Oasys LS-DYNA Environment

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

setting. It is not necessary to set this variable unless you have a specific reason to do so.

Ports Every LS-DYNA job uses 2 ports for communication, one for receiving information from the license server and one for sending information to the license server. LS-DYNA will try to use port number 31011, then 31012, etc up to port number 31110. If all of these ports are busy random port numbers will be tried until an free port is found. These ports are different to the one that the License Server uses as described above.

External Client Note; from LS-DYNA release 970 build 3858 onwards, an external client is not required and this section is now redundant.

4.1.1.7

Proxy Server

A proxy server is used when the nodes of a cluster cannot see the license manager. This happens because the nodes of the cluster are isolated from the main network. The Head Node of the cluster has 2 network cards, one for the internal nodes and one for the main network. The proxy server is run on the Head Node and relays license requests and communication between the LS-DYNA job and the license manager. Note: If the license manager is run on the Head Node of the cluster a proxy server is not needed since the Head Node can see both the cluster nodes and the outside network. The same license manager executable (lstc_server), serves as both the license manager and the proxy server. The license file determines if the executable behaves as a server or a proxy server. Note the line with PROXY in the example below:
ACME Inc. EMAIL: joe@acme.com FAX: 555-555-5555 TELEPHONE: 555-555-5555 (Joe Smith) # PROXY: 0B40E165 # ALLOW_RANGE: 192.168.001.001 192.168.001.255 # SERVER_WRITE: 600 SERVER_PING: 1200 CLIENT_PING: 900 ASSUME_DEAD: 3600 # KEY: D0 E1 16 58 8D B4 91 2E A2 A0 C0 15 88 D7 40 C2

Step 1: Setting up the Proxy Server To set up the Proxy Server follow the instructions in the Server Setup section of this manual to generate the LSTC_SERVER_INFO file on the proxy machine. Send the LSTC_SERVER_INFO file to LSTC or your local distributor to obtain the license file. Note that the Proxy Server license file has the same name server_data as the license manager so be careful not to mix them up.
Installation Guide_LS-DYNA-971_R4-2-1.doc Page 23 Ove Arup & Partners Ltd August 2009

Oasys LS-DYNA Environment

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

Step 2: Determine the IP Address Range: The IP Address Range that is included in the Proxy Server license file is for the internal nodes of the cluster. Normally the Head Node of the cluster has two different IP Addresses, one for the internal network and one for the main network. The license file for the License Server has to include the Main Network IP Address of the Head Node in order for the Proxy Server to talk with the License Manager.

Step 3: Starting the Proxy Server: Before starting the proxy server set the environmental variable: LSTC_LICENSE_SERVER to the Hostname or IP Address of the machine running the License Manager. Note; you will not be able to start the proxy server unless this variable is set. To start the proxy server follow Step 3 in the Server Setup Section 3 of this manual.

Step4: Cluster Slave Nodes The slave nodes of the cluster may include the head node if it is also used as a working node however, in most cases it is not. The Client Setup Procedure described in Section 4 of this manual applies to the slave nodes of the cluster. However, the slave nodes see the Proxy Server as the license manager. This means that the environmental variable: LSTC_LICENSE_SERVER is set to point to the Proxy Server machine and not to the actual license manager.

4.1.1.8

Utility Programs for Accessing the Server

There are 2 utility programs that are included with the Network License Manager and are used to check the jobs in the queue and the other is to kill jobs that are in the queue:
lstc_qrun lstc_qkill

Note: These are executables and just like the License Manager lstc_server are compiled for a particular hardware platform and operating system. So you must use the appropriate file for your machine. Unlike the License Manager, you can rename these files to any name you choose.

lstc_qrun The utility lstc_qrun is used to query the License Manager to see what jobs are currently running and what jobs are in the queue. It takes no command line arguments and has no options. An example of the output displayed on the screen is as follows:
Running Programs User Host Program Started # procs ---------------------------------------------------------------------------Bjones 5714546@bambi LS-DYNA_970 Thu May 20 10:40 2 Installation programs queued No Guide_LS-DYNA-971_R4-2-1.doc Ove Arup & Partners Ltd
Page 24 August 2009

Oasys LS-DYNA Environment

LS-DYNA 971 R4 Installation Guide

In this case there is only 1 job running and no jobs in the queue. The utility lstc_qkill is used to kill jobs that are currently running. Jobs can only be killed the following users: user that owns the job - specified in the above chart under the User Heading root user on the host machine root user on the license server machine user that started the license manager if different than the root user lstc_qkill To kill a job first run lstc_qrun to determine the job PID and machine it is running on. The information is listed under the Host heading in the above chart. For the example above, to kill the currently running job the format for the command is as follows: lstc_qkill 5714546@bambi The job will be terminated with a restart file and the license freed.

4.2.1.2 Introduction

Installation of LS-DYNA may be performed by an individual user, or by a system administrator. ROOT LEVEL PRIVILEGE IS NOT REQUIRED, but can be used to create a more convenient installation on some systems. It is recommended that the following installation procedure be carried out by someone knowledgeable with the UNIX operating system. In the following instructions, the "%" symbol represents the system prompt.
4.2.1.3 Request a license

All versions of LS-DYNA use a common licensing system across all platforms. In order to create a valid license file Oasys Ltd will need the LSTC machine ID; this is a unique ID generated by the LS-DYNA software. To generate the required machine ID carry out the following commands, after logging on to the relevant machine:
./ls-dyna.exe info where: ls-dyna.exe is the name of the executable you have installed

This will generate a file called lstc.log. The file contains the lines displayed between the dashed lines:

To obtain valid license keys send the lstc.log file to Oasys Ltd. Please send this file either by email: dyna.license@arup.com or by fax: +44 (0)121 213 3302. Please DO NOT send this file to LSTC. Before you send the file please ensure you modify the first 4 lines with the appropriate information. It is preferable to email the file but if this is not possible then fax a copy. Oasys Ltd will send the license key file back to you. It will look similar to the lstc.log file and will be called LSTC_FILE. If you are submitting jobs through the Oasys SHELL, the license is activated automatically when the shell is invoked. Otherwise you may activate it by typing: setenv LSTC_FILE (LSTC_FILE) The LSTC licensing system locks LS-DYNA to a specific machine. If you have a license agreement that allows you to run LS-DYNA on more than one machine then you will need to generate a lstc.log file for EACH machine and send all files to Oasys Ltd.

PC/Windows Updates to full package installation

If LS-DYNA is currently installed on your machine, and you would like to update the LSDYNA executable **DO NOT reinstall the Complete Package** as instructed below. Instead, download the latest executable form www.oasys-software.com/dyna. Place the file in the program subdirectory where you have LS-DYNA installed. Then from the LS-DYNA Program Manager click Solver then Select Solver, and select the new executable as the default file; this remains the default until a different executable is selected from the Solver Menu.
4.2.2.2 Full Package Installation

Web Download

Go to www.oasys-software.com/dyna and select download from the top menu then go to the LS-DYNA section. Pre-installation As part of the installation process you will need to enter the following information: Installation Directory (default: C:\LSDYNA) There are 2 different versions of LS-DYNA for the PC. Single CPU: A serial (1 CPU) version of LS-DYNA. This can be used on multi processor machines but each job will only run on 1 CPU. A parallel version of LS-DYNA that can be run using multiple CPUs. The license code for this version is different to that for the standard version as an additional license fee is required to use this version if you have more than 1 CPU.

Multiple CPU:

Installation

To install the standard version of LS-DYNA, use Windows Explorer to locate install.exe in the top area of the CD and then double click on it to start the installation process; select single or multiple CPU (we recommend the multiple CPU option in most cases). After you have entered the information listed above you will be asked to select one of the following 3 installation types: Typical - This option will install all of the software, manuals and example files . It will require about 85Mb of disk space. Compact - This option will install just the software. It will require about 45Mb of disk space. Custom - This option will allow you to individually select which components are loaded. Please select the typical option and click continue. Once the installation has been completed a new menu called LSDYNA will be added to the START -> PROGRAMS menu.

Post installation

After loading the LS-DYNA software, run the executable START -> PROGRAMS -> LSDYNA -> LS-DYNA MANAGER. Use the License->Registration option to generate an lstc.log file. Send this file to dyna.support@arup.com, to obtain your license file. Please keep the extension as .log Once your license file (LSTC_FILE) has been created it will be emailed back to you. Please save this file into C:\LSDYNA, alongside the executable.
Installing the license file

Two methods are available for installing the LSTC_FILE. 1. The preferred method. Set the environmental variable LSTC_FILE to locate its license file. For example, if the obtained license file is put into C:\LSDYNA alongside the executable, set the variable to C:\LSDYNA\LSTC_FILE. On Windows /XP PCs the control variables are accessed through start->settings>control panel->system.

2. Put the obtained license into the same directory as the executable and use the License>Import function. This will copy the license to a location in which LS-DYNA searches for license files (e.g. C:\WINNT). Note: the environmental variable LSTC_FILE should not be set, if you are using this method. Check that the license has been correctly installed by using the License->View License
Expiration option.

APPENDIX II - PC NETWORK LICENSE MANAGER


The LSTC Network License Manager for the PC/Windows platform is called lstclm.exe. The license server is installed under Windows because it runs as a service. Note: To install the software the user must have administrative privileges.

A2.1

Setting up the Network License Server


Step 1: Generate the LSTC_SERVER_INFO file There is a license file associated with the Network License Manager. The first step is to generate the license information. From the start menu select the Run command as shown below:

The following window is displayed. Use the Browse button to find the License Manager executable called lstclm.exe.

The file is located I the program subdirectory located in the directory where LS-DYNA was installed. The default directory is C:\LSYDNA\program. If you chose a different directory look in that directory. Double click on lstclm.exe or highlight the file name and press the Open button:

Include in your email the range of the IP addresses that should be included in the license file. For more information about the IP range see section 4.1.1 in this guide.

Step 2: Install the License Manager

Note: To install the software the user must have administrative privileges. Once your LSTC_SERVER_INFO file has been sent to Oasys Ltd your license will be generated and a server_data file will be emailed back to you. Save this file form your email to the program subdirectory which is in the same place as the Network License Manager (lstclm.exe) is located. Note; the filename does not include an extension. If the file in your email has a .txt extension remove it when you save the file out of the email.

The Network License Manager is started from the LS-DYNA Program Manager which is launched through the Start Menu. From the Network License menu select the Install LSTC License Manager as Services entry:
